  Cowboys | Rolando McClain dealing with stomach virus    Tue Jul 29, 08:54 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (illness) left practice early Tuesday, July 29, because of a stomach virus.

Footballguys view: Okay, well at least it's not an injury. The Cowboys defense has taken a few kicks to the midsection this offseason. Losing linebacker Sean Lee (knee) being the biggest blow.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain injured?    Tue Jul 29, 07:11 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (undisclosed) went to the locker room with doctors Tuesday, July 29. Stay tuned for an update.

Footballguys view: Just what the Cowboys need--more injuries at the linebacker position. They were desperate after Sean Lee (knee) was lost for the season, and that's why they signed McClain in the first place.

  Cowboys | Sean Lee optimistic about health    Tue Jul 29, 06:44 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) thinks he will return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee completely healthy. Lee is with the team in California for his rehab, and it's possible he could travel with the team for road games in the regular season. 'He's doing his rehab to get himself ready, but he's completely integrated with our football team,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'I can't think of a better guy to be in that role. He just embraces every chance he gets to be that much better.'

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley receives praise    Mon Jul 28, 03:20 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley looks lean and quick, according to LB Terrell Suggs. Suggs added that Mosley catches on quickly and has an attention to detail.

Footballguys view: Mosley was one of our favorite linebackers in this draft class. He's physical, stout against the run and he can make plays in coverage. The Ravens plucked him off the board in the 2014 NFL draft, and he should develop into a star for their defense.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain participates    Sat Jul 26, 01:43 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain joined the team for a special teams walkthrough Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys could certainly use a miracle on defense. With Sean Lee (knee) lost for the season, they need a player like McClain to finally start playing up to his potential.

LB Michael Wilhoite has been working with the starting defense during training camp, but LB Chris Borland could also compete for the starting job.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain sentenced to 18 days in jail    Fri Jul 25, 01:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was sentenced to 18 days in jail after being convicted of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. McClain has appealed the sentence an is flying back to the team's training camp.

Footballguys view: McClain may see some punishment from the NFL as well, now that the case is settled, although an appeal would likely delay that. He's basically on the roster bubble already so this doesn't help his case for staying, despite being traded for earlier in July.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain found guilty     Fri Jul 25, 01:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was convicted of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, Friday, July 15.

Footballguys view: Because the Dallas Cowboys need more uncertainty on their defense. Really, despite trading for him earlier this month, he isn't a sure thing in terms of making the roster. We'll see if there is a suspension, which should impact the odds on that.

  Giants | Jon Beason aiming for preseason opener    Fri Jul 25, 12:16 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) is hopeful he can play in the preseason opener. He's running in water as part of his rehab.

Footballguys view: Our own Andrew Garda has been attending camp and reports that Beason feels very good and while he knows he's not 100%, feels that he will be soon and knows that the team is making sure he stays on the path and doesn't overdo it. Beason also mentioned that he feels like he is getting a lot out of the film work , especially with Jameel McClain. Beason being out has moved McClain to the MLB position and rookie Devon Kennard to the SAM spot. Kennard will likely move out when Beason is healthy (McClain will shift to the SAM) but clearly he has caught the eye of the coaching staff. This could be a very productive group of linebackers.

  Cardinals | Deone Bucannon to play nickel linebacker?    Fri Jul 25, 02:57 AM

Arizona Cardinals first-round rookie SS Deone Bucannon could replace LB Larry Foote in nickel packages to take advantage of Bucannon's athleticism in pass coverage. Head coach Bruce Arians noted the defense will be molded to fit the players, rather than trying to make the players fit a specific system.

  Cardinals | Bruce Arians talks up his defense    Fri Jul 25, 02:54 AM

Arizona Cardinals LBs Kevin Minter and Larry Foote are expected to start next to each other at each inside linebacker spot in Arizona's 3-4 defense, replacing last year's starters, LBs Daryl Washington (suspended) and Karlos Dansby (Browns). Minter played one snap on defense as a rookie in 2013, but is expected to be an upgrade against the run from last year's interior duo. Foote, 34, enters his 13th year in the NFL, giving head coach Bruce Arians a contrasting pair inside. 'You are going to miss Daryl's (Washington) speed, because he's going to correct his mistake with speed. Larry (Foote) is not going to make that mistake. Whether or not he can get there fast enough, that's (left) to be seen.'

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain to practice Thursday    Wed Jul 23, 06:41 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain will practice Thursday, July 24, before traveling to a court date in Alabama Friday, July 25. McClain will return to the team Saturday, July 26, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are hoping that McClain finally plays up to his potential as a pro. He's washed out of the league with the Raiders and the Ravens, but the former standout at Alabama is getting another chance with Dallas. The Cowboys defense took a gut punch when Sean Lee was lost for the season with a knee injury earlier this year.

  Falcons | Pat Angerer signing    Tue Jul 22, 04:14 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are signing free-agent LB Pat Angerer (Colts), according to a source. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: If Angerer is healthy, the Falcons have an upgrade at the linebacker position. They had to do something after losing Sean Weatherspoon to an Achilles' injury. Angerer must be fully recovered from the knee injury (and offseason surgery), and we should see him get plenty of chances to prove himself with his new team.
